Course Number: CMSC 199
Course Title: Undergraduate Seminar

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the basic research methods in
At the end of this course the students should be able to:
- read, analyze, and evaluate published research papers in Computer Science;
- write a paper with quality suitable for submission in conferences or journals;
- orally present a research paper.
The student will be assigned a research paper to study. The papers may be survey papers or
full research papers. This semester, the set of papers
to choose from will be related to Systems. Students will have to write a review paper plus orally
present the research paper assigned on a designated date. All students in a section should read
the research paper to be presented and submit three (3) questions before the presentation. This ensures
that the students also read the other papers, not just the paper assigned to them. There will be three (3)
presentors each week which means that nine (9) questions will be submitted by each student.
